Job description

Northumbria Students’ Union is a £4.3m student led charity with an ambition to have a positive impact on the lives of all students at Northumbria University.

We are a proud community of 32,000 students based in Newcastle, London and Amsterdam. We believe that when our students come together, they have the power to make changes that enhance their lives as well as the lives of others around them.

We operate an impressive range of services from healthy cafes, bars, advice services, leadership development programmes for women, non-binary and black students and over 130+ societies.

NSU employs over 170 dedicated staff at the busiest time of the year, with a core of around 55 people on a year-round basis. We enjoy an excellent relationship with our University partner and a good financial position.

Our new Chief Executive will join us at an exciting time as we emerge from the pandemic, reflect on what we have learned and set a new ambitious strategic plan for 2022 and beyond.

We will need a decisive leader with an innovative mindset and dynamic leadership skills required to drive our new strategy, deliver operational excellence and transform our great services into excellent ones.

Experience of leading a portfolio of services, large teams and managing complex budgets are all important. However, we are most interested in leaders with a track record of bringing strategic thinking and role modelling inclusive leadership behaviours.

We are proud to have positive workforce and culture where people are empowered and feel like they belong. 95% of our staff recommend NSU as a good place to work. We strongly encourage any candidate who has a track record of demonstrating dynamic and inclusive leadership to consider this opportunity. We especially encourage candidates from underrepresented communities to apply.
